Coconut Bowls & 100% rye pastries. 

When I first saw coconut bowls I absolutely loved them, love at the first sight for sure. I was also hyped by all those smoothie bowls everywhere!

Of course is nothing wrong with a smoothie bowl but I think I started following a Social Media trend completely forgetting what I really like and what my true style is. Don’t get me wrong, smoothie bowls are brilliant and I do enjoy a lot of them, especially the green one with spinach! It’s just, they’re everywhere!

I live vegan lifestyle 80% of the day I think. Sometimes I enjoy pastries (wheat free of course) or cheese and eggs. So why not to share with you my non-vegan recipes! All my ingredients are organic, eggs from farms I know chickens have a normal life, same with cheese, only from locals!

Coconut bowls are not for a sole use for smoothie bowls in my opinion. They’re amazing for everything you want. Sustainable tableware which looks great, and is out of ordinary.

I decided to take some pictures featuring coconut bowl in a bit different way, in a style which I love the most. Majority call it a mystery light food photography. Call it any way you want, I call it rustic  😊

People may wonder why everyone is so hyped about coconut bowls? Some are hyped because these bowls are just adorable, aren’t they? But behind the cute coconut shell bowl is a bigger mission, sustainability. Every year millions of coconut shells are burned as waste, Coconut Bowls reclaim them and turn them into the food safe environmentally friendly products you can eat from!

I used my coconut bowl to put the cherries which I later used for my pastries. I think it looks as cool as a smoothie bowl ☺️

Recipe for pastries:

– 3,5 glasses of white rye flour

-200ml milk (I used almond milk)

-14g instant yeast

-2 eggs

-120g melted butter

-vanilla extract

-2/3 glass of sugar. I normally don’t use sugar but xylitol kills yeast so is not appropriate. Here I used Demerara and 65g of vanilla white sugar.

– cherries. I used preserved cherries, you can use fresh or frozen. Remember to unfreeze first, and get rid of the excess of water.


 

 

Ideal Home Show by Zoopla

Last week I had an opportunity to attend the Ideal Home Show by Zoopla at Kensington Olympia.

I was very excited as from what I heard, last year’s show was great with many interior inspirations and a buzzing atmosphere. Well, sadly I barely found something I really liked! Of course, I’ve seen some great arrangements or great armchair designs but overall the presented arrangements simply lacked SIMPLICITY. You know me well enough by now not to be surprised with this comment.

Living room arrangements were overloaded with the decor and three seat sofas with massive cushions. Oh, and don’t forget about flower vases that were way too big. The only thing I found really well arranged was one black and white bathroom with my favourite ladder towel rack and really stylish black sink, and one bedroom arrangement with a really nice side table and creatively attached light source.

My suggestion for the merchants showcasing? Gather more brands which are focused on simple design, and I’m sure it will gain a more modern audience, as I felt it was targeted only to people in mid-40s. Nothing wrong with that, but I personally felt let down.

But this is just my personal opinion. Did you attend the show? Have different feeling? Please, share it!

Arrangements for small Apartments

Hello, Everyone!

Time for a little project. As you probably know I live in London, where rent is unreasonably expensive and apartment sizes are, well… tiny. I thought I will share with you inspirations on how to arrange a tiny space. This will span a couple posts so stay tuned and you will see how this project will develop!

Today I want to share with you a few things which inspired me:

I think this is great when you have a small kitchen, especially when you are renting and hanging stuff on walls is problematic.

This is my favourite thing for a workspace in a tiny flat. You don’t need a million things on your desk, and this will definitely keep you out of the shops!

I absolutely adore using this shelving unit! It works as a great partition!

This is great. You can even glue it or something like that.

Would you use any of these ideas? I will be moving to the tiny apartment very soon and I need as many tricks as possible! Comment down below with your solutions for small spaces.

Back To School or Work. Productive Home Office

September! The month when summer holidays are over. Maybe excluding higher education – these lucky people usually still have some time off!. But most of us are ready to go back to work after our school or work holiday.

In my personal opinion, September is an amazing month to be as productive as possible and I feel I can be super focused. Mostly cause I love Autumn and cozy evenings with ginger tea when it’s a bit chilly and rainy outside the window. My brain doesn’t work properly in a heatwave, and this slight drizzle and a bit of wind is something that calms me down.

Speaking of being focused, we need that amazing workspace!

For me, simplicity is key. I need to have almost nothing around. Just my laptop, notebook(s), black pen and the tea. I want to show you some workspace inspirations as well as my own home office space.

Rustic

What is Rustic style? 

Rustic interiors prove that everything comes full circle. They have a rough-hewn charm that appeals to us in this era of slick  technology and manufactured materials.

You won’t find here machine polished and shiny materials. Rustic style describes a style with an emphasis on natural, unrefined elements.

 

Palette

Rustic colours? Mother Earth!

Many dark greens like khaki, forest leaf, all the browns and sometimes oxblood and very dark blue. But the main one is of course rustic wood colour.

 

Materials

The main material used in this style is unrefined wood, many times people decide to ‘DIY’ their interior, using pallets for example. But apart from wood, hand-stitched fabrics play an important role. Black and green checked throws, linen cushions and embroidered elements.

 

 

This style is not for everyone, but if you like warm spaces, somewhere where you can read your 100 books and drink tea, rustic style is perfect for you.

The House Fair 2016, London Olympia.

Happy Saturday everyone!

 

But, to the point, to the point.I had a pleasure to take part in The House Fair in London Olympia, and now I would like to share with you what I found there, what inspired me and who was my favourite exhibitor!

Enjoy and find your inspiration!

RAFT

My favourite items are definitely leather armchairs. But overall, RAFT presents good quality and affordable furniture.

 

I Love Produce Candles

Absolutely amazing idea and amazing person at the counter! I will surely purchase their tomato scent candle. Have a look and try, their candles are really original with scents like red wine, coriander, tomato, sage, rosemary, fig and more!

I love produce candles-1I love produce candles candles-1

 

Leporello

Another exhibitor with an amazing eye for the detail. Leporello designers produce an exceptional range of painted and polished wood furniture in both contemporary and classic styles. Also, their service includes custom design.

 

Greige

This is my favourite exhibitor. Colours, designs, everything that I love! Visit their website to find out about their open days on the Weekend in Chiswick.

 

I could not leave with empty hands, right… 🙂

What is luxury?

If you are interested, I recommend the article about the exhibition.  What is Luxury?- Exhibition. V&A

But here, it is more about the luxury at home and what is luxurious for us. For some people luxury is being able to have a relax and peace at home, for others it is being surrounded by pretty things. Or maybe you need a cashmere blanket to feel the luxury?

Everyone is different.

But I am sure that everyone will agree with me, that LuxDeco and their amazing products are luxurious.

New Metropolitan Luxe Collection is absolutely stunning. I picked my favorites.

This interior is absolutely stunning. Classic but out of ordinary armchairs, big shiny tables and colors! Brown and beige; these colors have always been classy.

MetropolitanLuxe

 

Here are some products from the collection:

If you want to make your space more luxurious all the products are available here:  Metropolitan Luxe | Shop LuxDeco.com A/W Collection

I hope you will like the Metropolitan Luxe Collection and you can find it as an inspiration.

Interior Design 2016 Trends.

Hey!

To start with, I am really sorry for the very long break but my postgraduate dissertation wanted to eat me.

But, I am back on track with some fresh ideas which I hope you will like.

Is anyone redecorating? Or moving?  I must admit that I am not the biggest fan of the 2016 interior design trends, excepting marble accents!

Dark Marble Coffee Table  Have a look here, I think is very useful and practical, especially in small spaces like studio flats or tiny living rooms. But I would also use it as a side bed table.

White Marble Candle Holders A must! I absolutely love them, if you are planning to redecorate your home and you want to be up to date with trends, these candle holders are for you. I already have them and I love them!

Marble Poster If you like to have something on your walls.
Marble Bathroom Accessories Plastic version but they pretend really well.

Marble Duvet Cover Set I would prefer a white version but this one is also amazing. And is not expensive at all!

Okay, enough of marble. What else is very popular in 2016? This year designers decided to bring granny florals into homes. As I mentioned before, I am not the big fan of this trend but maybe you can find something interesting.

 

Light Blue Floral Sofa Well, I think I need to change my mind… This sofa catches an eye. If you like light and fresh spaces this one is a must.

Multicoloured Floral Sofa If you like pink, go for it.

Catherine Lansfield Floral Curtains Grandma has made strawberry confiture? I don’t why but these curtains bring me a picture of the countryside, strawberries, and an absolute peace.

 

Ready for your new trendy home?

Let’s start!
